W
hat’s the difference between Democrats and Socialists?

It’s not a joke, nor is it a trick question. But it is a question even national Democratic Party leaders have a hard time answering. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former Democratic National Committee chairwoman, couldn’t answer it and, instead, said the more important difference was between Democrats and Republicans. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said it depended on how you define Democrats versus Socialists, and then he refused to define the two.

Even Hillary Clinton was stumped by the question, merely describing herself as a “progressive Democrat” and not a Socialist.

You would think these Democratic leaders would be able to answer the question. But they either can’t tell the difference, or they simply refuse to admit the hard truth.

There is no difference—not any longer. The Democratic Party has become the party of socialism and the growing emergence of hard, left-wing socialists ruling the party threatens every one of us and every thread of our firearm freedom. It didn’t used to be this way. But over the last few years, those great Democratic leaders have disappeared and those kinds of Democrats have been choked out of the Party—replaced by the most liberal candidates they can find … who can be defined only as rabid socialists.

They’ll roadblock everything the president tries to accomplish and, essentially, render his presidency ineffective …

These European-style socialists believe in a complete redistribution of wealth and government control of major components of the u.s. economy, such as our health care system. From socialized medicine, to higher taxes on most Americans to pay for more government welfare programs, to government-paid college tuition and more.

Make no mistake: If the socialists take power, all of our freedoms could be lost—especially our Second Amendment-protected freedom to keep and bear arms.

History proves it. Every time, in every nation in which the scourge of socialism rises to power, its citizens are repressed and their firearms are not just banned—they are taken.

Venezuela is the latest example, its resources stolen by the Socialist Party ruling class, while children starve on the streets and honest citizens are left defenseless in the wake of a national gun ban. Soviet Socialism, National Socialism, Maoist Communism—this evil, destructive, left-wing ideology is on the march right here in America … backed by all the George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer billions … and gleefully promoted by all the Huffington Post, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Rachel Maddow, Salon bloggers and liberal activists posing as journalists. All preying on a new generation of young Americans walking out of the classrooms of socialists who serve as professors of hatred of American capitalism and individual liberty.

The socialists of academia have turned our college campuses into anti-constitutional enclaves where “free speech” is zoned off and free market capitalism written off.

Even our judiciary is threatened by socialist judges who go so far as to ignore the law and legal precedent to fit their own agenda. The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has become the favorite of any socialistic group looking for an opinion to advance its cause.

Make no mistake. These socialists hate Donald Trump—especially as the president has nominated conservative judges at a record pace.

Perhaps the only thing they hate more than President Trump is the National Rifle Association of America.

Their plan is simple. Dump billions of dollars into the 2018 elections and take over the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate. The money is in the bank, the national media is behind them, and the socialist coup d’état is just one election away.

If successful, they’ll threaten our country with two years of impeachment nonsense. They’ll roadblock everything the president tries to accomplish and essentially render his presidency ineffective … and replace him with a screaming socialist in 2020.

And then they’ll come after us.

Our freedom and our nation face a dark, grave future.

But the socialists haven’t won, yet.

We can and we must stand up, reject their socialistic agenda, and join together to defeat them. It starts now with every one of us, and every freedom-loving American.

The men and women of the NRA have proven to be the only group of patriots with the will and the strength to beat back the wave of socialism that is spreading across the country.

We must not—not ever—allow our U.S. Capitol to be flooded by socialism. We will rise. We will stand and fight. We will save and protect our freedom and our great America!
